Canon - Canon 5D 1st version vs 6D 1st version

Canon Camera EOS forum from Photo.net - photo.net
I bought a 5D new in 2007 I think about at the end of its run, and I've always liked the camera. Didn't use it for the past 2 or 3 years but now using it again regularly. Still a great camera, has never missed a beat. Seeing the price of the 1st version 6D now, I'm wondering if it would be worth a buy to replace the 5D.

Here are the questions I have comparing the 2 cameras, for anyone who has used both.

Is the 6D's screen any easier to see in daylight?

Is the 6D lighter or smaller? Any better or worse as far as ergonomics? My 5D has always felt comfortable in hand.

Does the 6D clearly handle a couple stops higher ISO from the 5D 1st version?

I assume color is similar? Is dynamic range and black and white conversion the same, better, different, or worse with the 1st version 6D?

Auto focus is fine for me on the 1st version 5D. Is the 6D's pretty much the same thing?

Video is a plus on the 6D, but I probably wouldn't be using it much.

Thanks in advance...
